December Attendance Incentive
We have received some questions from parents who are concerned that students will be penalized for illness or appointments. While we understand and appreciate these concerns, we will not be making any exceptions to the guidelines for this incentive. We are having a problem with declining attendance rates here at Kesterson, and those rates are affecting our students' academic achievement. Additionally, our declining attendance rates were part of the reason our school went from five stars to four stars this year. Since this is a big problem, we wanted to make the incentive really exciting for the students. As with any great prize, not every student will earn this incentive. We understand that some absences are unavoidable. However, if a student is absent or tardy, or has to leave early for an appointment sometime in December, he or she will be able to try to earn the incentive again in January. We are planning on having these parties each month to encourage improved attendance here at Kesterson.
Please Be Good Neighbors
Also, please make sure that you are behaving safely when you pick up or drop off your children. U-turns are illegal in school zones, and Henderson Police Department has been known to give tickets before and after school. Follow all posted speed limits, and PLEASE USE CROSSWALKS!
